Around the world, conflict is taking a massive toll on people’s lives. Trapped in conflicts not of their making, civilians struggle to survive while air strikes and shelling drive them from their homes. Children are forcibly recruited and denied an education, and people, especially women and girls, are subjected to horrendous acts of sexual violence. Humanitarian workers who deliver aid, along with the medical workers who treat the wounded and sick, are targeted, detained and treated as threats.
